it might happen. >> so rupert murdoch, his son and rebekah brooks testify tomorrow. what are we expecting from this hearing? >> well, we're expecting that rupert murdoch will the box office draw. he'll be grilled by british members of parliament. he'll be cross-examined about his extent of the knowledge with what his executives were up to when they apparently, as the accusation goes, authorized these phone hacking antics to go ahead against celebrities and victims of crimes. to what extent he knew and to what extent he'll do something about it. so it will be a pretty explosive day. and obviously, the very fact the the world's most powerful media mogul is appearing in front of the british has parliament to answer questions in this way is a fascinating event in itself. >> so we're talking about this as a business story. rupert murdoch stepping down. and it's political drama because he's so influential in british politics. and american politics. counselor, he knows there's criminal investigations on both sides of the atlantic. rupert murdoch and his deputies need to be careful, don't they? >

and get nowhere. >> i want to read you something "new york times" columnist david brooks wrote the other day. he said if the republican party was a normal party it would take advantage of this-trillions of dollars in spending cuts in exchange for a few million dollar increases in revenue. he is saying if it collapses the republicans will be blamed. >> they're talking about $2 trillion in spending cuts but over a 10 to 15-year period. we can't bind future congresses. so there's no guarantee that any of those cuts ever occur. larry lindsay had an article in the "wall street journal" yesterday. he said if interest rates go up two points, you'll have 5 trillion extra in spending on interest. if you look at the exploding charts on spending and debt, it's going to be driven by interest in the next ten years. so i don't think we can count on and trust congress to do what they say we're going to do for ten years. i don't personally trust the body of congress to do what they say. or any of their promises. that's why i would only trust it if we actually amended the constitution to say you have to
